COMMISSION ON WOOL.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—-In your report of the Farmers' Union in Friday's Guardian, I am made to say, that 1 would advise the farmers to send their wool Home, but the reason for my saying so is not given. The Oxford Branch eeut a remit to the Conference that 2£ per cent should over all charges (other than railage and insurance) on the sale of wool by auction. Now, sir; what I was combating was the Woolbrokers' Association in threatening to boycott the New Zealand Farmers' Co-operative if they continued to refund 25 per cent of their CommigHion on the sale of wool to their clients. I have no wish to advise farmers to send their wool Home, if they will give us fair play here. We have a right to do our business with whom we like, and one Association has no right to dictate to another what it shall do with its Commissions, and if the woolbrokers carry out their threat, then we will stand to the Farmers' Co-op., and send our wool Home, and we mi^ht do quite as well and perhaps better.—l am, et.\, W. T. LTLL. Willowby, May 29th, 1905.
